Getting old :(

Posted 05-17-2012 at 12:52 AM by ak allen

So lately I have noticed that I'm not seeing things as well as I used to at a distance. Also that driving at night is a little more difficult/uncomfortable. Things up close have been fine, like this computer screen for example, is crystal clear. Anyway, I decided to make an appointment on post at the Optometry clinic. Today was the day for the appointment.

So the ran their tests, and fitted me for glasses. That puff of air thing is annoying to say the least. I found out my vision isn't bad at all, just a little off at a distance.

Now I find myself looking for glasses, and contemplating what I will do for fishing. I could just use my regular polarized sunglasses. But in the spirit of enjoying life to its fullest, I am thinking I will find something polarized in my prescription for my outdoor activities.

Just another sign that I'm not a spring chicken anymore.

    I know the feeling. Last couple of seasons I've been taking a pair of cheaters with me on the river for tying on small flies. I'm sure in a few years I'll break down and go see the eye doctor for some prescription glasses. Putting off for now, Denial is a synonym of Vanity!!
